Ok well I don't think there is an "updated" or "fixed" part for this, so the new part you got is probably identical to the original except the gasket is brand new. I don't know that for a fact, but about a year ago when I was at the dealer, there was no "new" part to fix this, only a replacement original.

The problem with the factory gasket is that it is like a sponge, it is porous, so once it gets soaked with water (heavy rains) the water seeps through it. The material I used to make my new gasket is a solid rubber (not porous), so it will never leak....
